Seems like everybody has a Prince cover in their set these days, but Beck has had several for years. He’s been known to play “Purple Rain” and “Raspberry Beret,” the latter being an occasional staple of Beck’s shows dating all the way back to 2003. But he played his cover again this weekend during the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee.
There’s always been a loose connection between Prince and Beck. Both seemed to effortlessly shift between musical genres and both, of course, were never afraid to bust every dance move. Beck also credits “Raspberry Berry” as an inspiration for his Midnite Vultures song “Debra.” Prince also presented Beck with the Grammy for Best Album at the awards ceremony in 2015.
